A healthy root chakra makes one feel calm, collected, and confident. If it is unbalanced, then a person is a bundle of nerves at all times. Just imagine being moody, anxious, and paranoid at all times. Many among us suffer through the same.
However, such people can be at peace and become self-reliant by forming a link with their root chakra. Grounding yoga is of great help to establish this connection.
The following yoga poses will help you achieve harmony between body and soul:-
Remember, at school in the morning assembly, you had to “stand at ease.” This asana requires you “to be at ease.” Your palms should be open, and shoulders should be relaxed. The bottom of your feet should feel firmly connected with the earth. Inhale and exhale slowly. Do it ten times.
As shown in the picture, both the feet should firmly touch the ground. It seems easy enough, but looks can be deceiving. Remain in the position for a minute. Repeat by changing sides.
Just like a tree grounds itself to the earth, similarly, you will eventually ground yourself by doing the asana below. You will become more steady, both physically and mentally. It’s not necessary to keep the eyes closed. If you do this pose with open eyes, you can attain balance well by focussing on any one point in front of you.
This is the best asana to achieve flexibility. It should be the lower part of your belly, which should touch the thigh. The head follows. If possible, be in this position for five breaths, at least. Then change sides.
It seems so simple, but in actuality, quite hard as it expects you to surrender to the earth simply. Always finish your yoga routine with this pose. Ideally, you should devote 10 minutes to it daily.
Make the above-mentioned yoga poses for grounding, a part of your everyday routine, connect with the root chakra, and repair your imbalance.
